Summary note:
"The Sociedad Colombiana de Arquitectos dedicates the following pages to some of the large urban projects taking place in Colombia. The projects described here are an example of conceptual quality, social awareness and positive impact they have generated in the society."--Page 9. The large urban projects range from the restoration of historic centers, through the renovation of deteriorated downtown areas, the improvement of neighborhoods, the reuse of disused industrial areas, slaughterhouses, bullring, new ports and airports, Expansion and construction of new housing, adaptation of neighborhoods and cities to climate change, to urban mobility projects, public space, and educational institutions, among others. The architects have the responsibility to optimize the positive impacts and to minimize the negative ones that could generate the Big Urban Projects, identifying them and leaving them provisionally in the Plans of Territorial Ordering, distributing them with equity in all the city, Integrating them to the existing fabric respecting and valuing its Environment, and even incorporating all the participants involved, establishing innovative alliances with the public and private sectors and making them refer to good urban and architectural design. In these pages the Colombian Society of Architects presents some of the selected Urban Projects that are currently implemented and promoted in Colombia, projects that stand out for their conceptual quality, their social sensitivity and the positive impact they have begun to generate in the community.
